On to Tonopah for New Years at the Mizpah

 After breaking camp in Panamint Valley we drove to Tonopah, Nevada. On the way we drained the water tank in the camper because the temperatures in Tonopah were forecast for a low of 12 and high of 35. (This event would have consequences later on our trip.)
We planned to celebrate another New Years Eve at the Mizpah Hotel.

We brought in the New Year with the hotel's 'Mardi Gras at the Mizpah.' Our evening began with a 4-course New Orleans-style dinner in the elegant Jack Dempsey Room. After dinner we joined the Mardi Gras party in the lobby and enjoyed a midnight champagne toast.
 This year Clark and Jo Ann joined us for the event. Hats and party favors provided by the Mizpah.
The Lady in Red was not seen roaming any of the hallways during our stay.
